Art Research Groups

Through critical examination and innovative forms of practice, Arts Research is united in its core principles of social engagement through creativity, collaboration, participation, and inter and cross-disciplinarity.  

These principles shape distinctive research outputs ranging from investigations of transglobal exchange in visual and material cultures; fine art conservation; experimental forms of exhibition making and curation; studies and production of moving image, to processes and practices of theatre and performance. They have resulted in unique interactions across, for example, fields of fine art, science and technology; and between black and minority ethnic organisations and cultural studies’ academics in interpretations of cultural heritage.
